Importer from Abe's Thanks mod (vB3 / vB4) now available in Lite version!


Major Features: Lite

Require a Button CLick: Allows you to hide the content of a post, or hie an attachment, until the person clicks a button on the post.

Statistics: Shows the top 5 people for; Giving / Receiving button clicks.

Collapsable postbit stats: Shows how many button clicks a person has given, received etc in the postbit. Admins can determine what statistics can show in the postbit to control sizes etc. The postbit is also collapsable.

Admin Permissions: Control things such as who can click buttons, require button clicks, what shows in postbit, what options can run concurrently, per forum permisions etc.

Reputation: Add / Remove Reputation for each of your button clicks.

Notifications: Receive alerts when a member clicked on one of the buttons for one of your posts.

Import Thanks: Import script to import "thanks" from Abe's [AJAX] Post Thank You Hack on vBulletin.org. It will work with both vB3 and vB4 versions of this mod.

Import Likes: Import script to import "likes" from vBSEO.


Major Features: Pro

Infinite Buttons: Ability to create new buttons to press! No longer do you need to be limited by Thanks / Like / Dislike.

Auto Collapse Posts: Collapses a post so it doesnt show up by using a formulae for button clicks of your choosing.

User Postbit Config: Lets users decide what postbit stats they want to see.

Additional permissions: Un-click a button. Control how many stats show on the statistics page, set permissions per subforum.

Integrated Controls: You can now integrate the button clicking controls into the post footer, like many of you requested.

Buttons in First Post Only: This allows you to only make the first post thankable. If you forum is based around news, releases or anything similar this will allow your users to easily see the quality of the thread in question.

Button Click Anonymity: This feature will be extremely helpful to forums who like the idea of a "dislike" button, but don't like the drama it brings. Now you can set certain buttons to be anonymous - no one will see who clicked.

Post Colour Thresholds: Ever wanted an easy way for members to tell if a post is helpful or trash? Colour thresholds let you change the colour of posts depending on how many clicks of a button they receive. Members can now see at a glance whether or not a post is helpful, interesting or pointless.

I've been unable to confirm this, can you please try to edit the post and ensure the Require Thanks checkbox is indeed checked?

Can you please try re-downloading the zip and re-uploading all files, just in case there were some fixes to the files since you downloaded?

Hey, I've installed this on our test-server and all seems to be working well - I like it so far.

EDIT: I see there is a search function enabled, I need to check into it more though to see how it works out.

Is it possible to create a section on the homepage (i.e. a box, where people normally place announcements our shoutboxes) where the top likes/posts are listed, with a link to a search?

And of course, if it could be enabled for threads... that would be PERFECT.

Not currently, but we're looking into it for future versions

Hey DBTech,

Thanks for being active and answering the questions. I really hope you can manage to get this to work out!

I'd just like to note that when I uploaded the files for your mod and installed it and then rolled back my forum DB to the previous one (prior to installation), I was getting some serious exception error and my forum would not load. I don't remember the error message (this was last week during pressure time so I didn't think of notifying).

What I did to fix this: I returned the forum to current version, disabled the mod from the product manager, and then rolled back to the earlier version- then my forum was accessible.

My guess- if the mod is installed without the proper files uploaded on the FTP side to back it (Which is what happened on DB rollback), this causes some sort of exception and crashes the server, making the forum inaccessible.

You should test this out and see if you can simply make the mod unavailable/not working in this case, as opposed to crashing the whole forum.

I am running 3.8.2 and I believe MYSQL 4.1

I had a bunch of other mods installed, but since this error didn't happen till rollback, I doubt that was the issue.

I'm also running vBSEO 3.3.0

There's no way to make the mod unavailable if the files are missing; the actions that would make the mod inaccessible would themselves be missing.

Hey DBtech,

Please check this post I made:
http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showt...84#post2071584

If you are interested in creating something like that or already have something like that available, then please let me know (it's another version of tabbed forums).

What about sending notifications to user who receives the "like"? It's that possible? Maybe in a pro version...

And the "dislike" feature includes "undo" of a like?

Thanks!
